Celebrating a special occasion with my niece, The Pear Tree was the right place to go. A lovely contemporary decor set the stage, knowledgable and pleasant staff waited on our table, and the food was beautifully prepared, delicious and served in a very timely manner. A creative menu, with delightful unexpected "pear" touches! Free parking around the corner.

From the outside this looks like an unprepossessing restaurant in Burnaby, part of metropolitan Vancouver. However once you are inside the decor is high quality modern. The best part is however the food. The menu is short and the better for that. The food we had was faultless both in taste and presentation. I had the tomato soup followed by... More

after reading great reviews (especially from 'where chefs eat') I had high hopes for The Pear Tree the experience far exceeded my expectations, from the phone call regarding our booking from Scott to a delightful greeting and sublime pear cocktail on arrival started with the outstanding prawn cappuccino, then the most amazing beef tenderloin followed by poached pears with lavender...

Average dining experience. Menu is somewhat limited, however, their wine list is impressive. Prices are comparable with the better restaurants in Downtown Vancouver, but the Burnaby restaurant offers nothing special. Service was great.

Had dinner there last night. Started off with scallops in a bacon risotto as an hors d'ouvre,, with perfectly baked chicken as the main course, and ended with a dish of Stilton cheese and candied walnuts. That and a nice white BC wine is about as good as life gets! The staff and service was exceptional making for a memorable... More

Scott and Stephanie continue to show their clients how a great restaurant runs! Food and service excellent; ambience couldn't be better. Keep it up; we will be back again, and again, and again.

The Pear Tree has just become our favorite restaurant! The owners are wonderful, seem to love their jobs and value their clientele. Their staff members were attentive, friendly, informative and polite... but not always in your way. The restaurant was smaller than I expected, making it quiet, relaxing and very enjoyable! There was not a huge menu selection. But the... More

This place is amazing! Presentation and flavours of food were superb! I had the carmelized orange scallops on bacon risotto and the seasonal halibut as the main course. Both were awesome! My hubby had the prawn bisque to start which was great and had lots of prawn pieces but his main entree of lamb shank was just okay...nothing special. However,... More

We went there for our anniversary, after hearing one of our friends raving about Pear Tree all the time. Pear Tree has an unpretentious decor and can be easily missed when you are walking by. We had a groupon for a five course meal and all the dishes were delicious and beautifully presented. Wine pairing was great and service was... More

Have been going to Pear Tree since it's humble small beginning. Many memorable dinners here and have recommended it to business associates, friends and family. Very disappointed last month for anniversary dinner. Food: menu doesn't change very much. Boring tossed Caesar salad that I could have had at any chain restaurant. Lamb usually very good but dry this time Service:... More
